We recently returned from an early November Hedo II trip. We are long-time repeat guests and due to the ongoing improvement plans underway (facility, food, etc.) and great owner/management/staff attitudes we saw exhibited during our stay, we've already planned several return trips for 2014.
We had a few minor room problems shortly after we check-in and we also attended some friends' wedding on the property during our stay. Lorna Brammer who oversees both guest relations and wedding planning handled both our room issues quickly and efficiently, and with regard to our friend's wedding, it was well done, tasteful, and beautiful in all respects. With regard to the wedding, here are some of our observations:
- The Jamaican minister that did the ceremony was really outstanding! His exquisite choice of words and beautiful style of delivery along with the beauty of the moment brought tears to bride and groom and all the attendees eyes. Of course, the very caring Lorna was quick with tissues to dry the eyes of the bride and groom mid-ceremony, so that the ceremony could continue on. A nice touch and great planning on Lorna's part.
- The setting (Hedo's jetty) where the wedding took place and where Hedo's wedding arch is located is very picturesque (a wedding photographer/videographer's dream) with the ocean lapping on to the beach just a few feet away and a great multi-directional blue ocean vista.
- The decorations and flower arrangements (both on the beach and at the reception) were tropical and very nicely done.
- The wedding cake was beautiful and very good tasting. Not too sweet - the kind of cake that most people would enjoy having an additional piece.
- The room where the reception was held was very nice. Clean, tasteful, a Caribbean feel with lots of windows in it. Lots of tropical foliage grew up next to many of the windows which added to the room's Caribbean ambiance.
- Of course, I can't forget the Hedo guests - the other main ingredient in addition to Lorna's efforts to a successful Hedo wedding. Hedo guests love weddings and at the wedding we attended had an abundance of ready-made and proudly self-proclaimed extended family and friends in attendance all with their preverbal "hanky in hand" ready to pitch in or just to enjoy a good cry. Some people who have never been to Hedo II might think that having a wedding there would have all the pageantry of a wet t-shirt contest at a frat house, but that was not the case at all. Hedo guests know when it's time to party and when to be well behaved for solemn occasions. Lorna and Hedo II really came through with a beautiful, fun, and all around great wedding and reception for our friends.
The bottom line - Hedo is on a path of continuous improvement in all aspects and we had a great trip. It's a great place to vacation and for sure it's a great place to have a wedding especially with Lorna Brammer''s oversight in coordinating it along with her very genuine caring influence.
Great job Hedo II and great job Lorna who we very much enjoyed getting to know during our recent trip.
